She traveled her days on a long, bumpy road
carrying the burdens of a heavy load
she smiles the memories of her yesteryears,
living her life without the shackles of fear
tides of her past, warms her heart from the cold,
leaving her soft, misty, grey clouds to behold
deep as the raging ocean, are her sorrows
rolling waves of the sea bring hopes of tomorrow
every sunrise, is a new gift of living
a divine blessing she’s been given
another day to walk that old and bumpy road
and find a place to lay down her heavy load

It’s time for Friday Fictioneer’s and it’s another week that I am sharing my interpretation for the above photo prompt. For those who haven’t heard Friday fictioneeer is an addictive writing challenge. Thanks to our host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple who provides us with a new photo to work with every Wednesday until Friday to come up with an original 100 word story. It is an excellent way to fine tune your editing craft. But it’s okay if you go over or below the word count a little. I guess it’s okay as long as you’re not submitting War and Peace. I find it challenging to work my story, this week poem down or up until I have exactly 100 words.
At the end of my story there’s a link that will connect you with the story other bloggers shared. Please visit the link above for complete rules. Constructive criticism welcome. to read more click on the link below.
